it always seems impossible until it's done
I believe everything is possible - especially when we work together.
We have the resources. We have the means. We have the desire. And we have each other. Now is the time to co-ordinate these 4 elements.
Having been battered by setbacks and challenges, I understand what it feels like to seem defeated. I now realize each challenge was my opportunity to make it my greatest personal development success story.
Are you ready to discover what you're capable of and turn your challenges into fuel?
Andrew left the corporate world in 2017 when he was laid off. Faced with a clean slate he used it as an opportunity to reimagine a new vision for his life. While working on everything he loved he had a spark of inspiration that set his soul on fire - to climb Table Mountian (Cape Town, South Africa) every day for an entire year, 365 Ubuntu Climbs was born.
While absolutely bonkers - it ticked every box he was working on, even if becoming an endurance athlete wasn't one of them! With six months to train Andrew diligently worked on turning a dream into reality. As a keen fundraiser, Andrew seized the opportunity to use this as a unique platform to raise money and awareness for housing, education, and health. Andrew invited investors and supporters alike to join on a day of their choosing and become part of the story - another world's first. The essence of ubuntu.
Andrew achieved his goal and climbed Table Mountain every. Single. Day. No days off all year in 2018 - the vertical equivalent of 71 Mt. Everest in elevation. Nobody has ever done this before - and having completed it Andrew understands why!
R1million ($67,000) was raised in the process for The Sunflower Fund, Habitat for Humanity, and One Heart for Kids. All money raised gave people born into more challenging circumstances a hand up. Andrew uses this same perseverance, patience, and passion in his mission and works to empower individuals and organizations for transformative change.
